Writing stories has alway been as essential to me as, well, breathing. I would write in the chow queue or lying on a torpedo when at action-stations in the Navy. I would tell stories before I could write them. When I was eight, I wrote an adventure where the two baddies were brothers named Ted and Edward, not knowing that they were the same name! Only when the reality of supporting a family made it impossible to find the time to write, did I not write, although everywhere I looked there were possible plots and interesting characters. Now that I have retired I can write full time. All my stories have a Southern African background.
I am busy with a second CID Sergeant Dice Modise novel as a follow up to 'Hunter's Venom' which was published by Amazon Direct Publishing and available on Kindle.
I also write a blog on my path to living an exciting life and writing novels on www.peterjearle.wordpress.com .
I review crime novels on www.writersworkshop.co.uk/crimefiction/
I am owned by 8 horses, two dogs and a cat. We all live in a little rural village in the Western Cape of South Africa.
